In this webinar (the second in a series of four), we answer the frequently asked question: “How can I adopt direct mass spectrometry in my routine analysis workflow?” By combining direct mass spec – in the form of selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) – with conventional laboratory automation, most routine analysis techniques are readily applied. Examples include use of sequence tables, full calibration approaches (including QCCs), and use of standard additions.

Join the second of four webinars, on Tuesday, October 6, to hear from Dr. Mark Perkins, Senior Applications Chemist at Anatune Limited, and Dr. Vaughan Langford, Principle Scientist at Syft Technologies, as they discuss the adaptation of these routine techniques to automated SIFT-MS is illustrated with case studies applicable to environmental, consumer product, and biomedical laboratory testing. In particular, head-to-head comparison of GC/MS and SIFT-MS for headspace analysis of volatiles in blood plasma will be described.

Note: Method validation approaches are the focus of the third webinar in this series.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Very brief review of SIFT-MS and its automation
  • How easy it is to adapt existing, proven laboratory procedures and techniques to SIFT-MS
  • Examples of routine analysis techniques using SIFT-MS with relevant case studies covering sequence tables, calibration, QCCs, SSTs, standard additions, and internal standards
  • A head-to-head comparison of GC/MS and SIFT-MS for headspace analysis of volatiles in blood plasma

Who should attend:

  • Laboratory managers and analysts in routine industrial and contract testing and research laboratories, particularly those working with the analysis of volatiles
  • Laboratory managers and analysts in pharmaceutical, biomedical, industrial, consumer product, and environmental laboratories
